Anyone reminiscent of my very favorite author E. Benson is well-worth a try! I am also a Hazel Holt fan of many years. I am having a memory lapse! I am trying to remember an author I read many years ago whose main character was a woman herb person. Her husband was murdered and she was a suspect. She really knew her herbs. Can anyone help me please!! There were several in the series. The book where her husband is murdered is several books into the series.
All of the books start with Face Down. These books are great! I have read every one. I love them. The stories are interesting and it really is a good cozy. If you want to read a good series, try this one. I think I am going to go back and start reading them over again! Thanks, Patti! You are yet another person who enjoys Hazel Holt. It looks like there are several of us…. Mallory series. What a treasure trove of real cozy english mysteries.
The writing is perfect. Some good editors The mysteries are all very good, believable and just plain interesting stories. I have found 7 in a library. Thanks again Danna, and Mrs. Holt for your good books. Tressa, I read an interview with Hazel Holt where she gives her editors a lot of credit.
Thank you for clarifying. I really enjoy your books. You have given me many hours of reading pleasure! I love the picture on the cover of the book. It is my favorite.
It has been a very enjoyable time for me, hours of pleasurable reading and very good writing. I have just finished the final book in the series at least, I think it is…can anyone confirm? I received this particular book for Christmas a couple of years ago from my husband, who stumbled across this author while looking for a new author for me as a surprise…and it WAS! When I looked up the book list and found that this was book 21, I wanted to read the series from book 1, putting off reading this one until I got to it…thus began my journey with Mrs.
